Jean-Paul Ollivier offers the best of his anecdotes from his forty-plus years commentating the Tour de France in this cultural almanac that takes us on a trip around the Hexagon right alongside the Tour’s most famous riders. The Tour is a saga rich with moments of joy, drama, and surprise, moments of reflection and unbearable suspense. Following the trail of the Tour de France, Jean-Paul Ollivier roams France’s great regions (such as the north, Normandy, Brittany, Landes, and the Pyrenees) to highlight anecdotes and memories from the Tour.

        This perspective will give us the pleasure of rediscovering the exploits of the Tour’s greatest riders, including the likes of Darrigade, Bahamontès, Bobet, and Hinault. But Jean-Paul Ollivier doesn’t neglect about the surrounding landscape and its unique scents: the harvested wheat of Brie, the hops of Alsace, the lavender of Provence. The moments he gets off his bike also provide opportunities to learn about some of history’s secrets, like the Vannes smallpox epidemic in 1954, the mysterious negotiations of the Évian Accords, the French Connection investigation near Marseille, and much more…

        Through his three great passions—sports, geography, and history—Jean-Paul Ollivier draws up a stunning map of France. You will learn thousands of things in this delightful book.
